PalmSource, the maker of the popular Palm OS handheld operating system, has released a Web browser specifically tuned for Palm OS Version 5.

Device makers that license Palm OS, which include Palm, Handspring and Sony, have yet to release hardware running OS 5. When they do, they will have the option to include the new browser software, which adds new support for industry standards.

Palm OS 5 is designed to run on devices that use a variety of chips based on ARM's core design. That new architecture is designed to improve the speed of Palm OS-powered devices.
